Best Face Cream? [We Have Some Surprising Thoughts]

Women everywhere agonize over choosing a face cream. Most women at one time have splurged on the latest and most expensive product, and have sometimes settled for the drugstore brand. All of these tinctures and ointments say you see results in 12 weeks, so it’s hard to know if it’s working. The phrase “improves the appearance of” whatever it’s supposed to fix, makes you wonder if it changes anything or just makes it temporarily look better. Here’s a quick rundown of a few products running the gamut of four dollars to two thousand!

 Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser – This inexpensive classic is 50 percent moisturizer. It removes makeup and oil to leave the skin feeling soft. It’s only four dollars! Does that mean we do or don’t want that? Take your pick!

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream – It’s paraben free and made of natural ingredients that leave skin feeling soft. SPF 30 protects from sun damage, and it gets good reviews from people who have tried it.

Some say their face felt lifted and skin tone more even, but others said the result wasn’t worth the price.
